The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston is a non-collecting contemporary art museum that exhibits the work of emerging and mid-career artists. We show adventurous and challenging contemporary art that strives to be a voice in the international artistic conversation. In addition to exhibitions by established artists, we host an independent film series, lectures, panel discussions, conferences and provide tours. The Halsey Institute exists to advocate, exhibit and interpret visual art, with an emphasis on contemporary art. We are committed to providing a direct experience with works of art in all media within an environment that fosters creativity, individuality, innovation and education.
